City looks to select conference center site

City looks to select conference center site

October 18th, 2011 in News

The Jefferson City Council will be asked to make a final decision on a site for the proposed conference center at a special meeting set for Monday.

Nathan Nickolaus, interim city administrator and city counselor, said the special council meeting will include a presentation on two possible sites, the Missouri State Penitentiary or a property on the 200 block of West McCarty Street. The positives and negatives of each site will be discussed.

He said the council then will be asked to choose a site so the city can begin putting its efforts into one selected site.

"It's really just impossible to continue to pursue two at the same time," Nickolaus said. "I'm hoping (the council) will make that decision."
